First Intel-powered smartphone to be launched in India

Intel has confirmed details of the first smartphone to be powered by one of its processors.


The XOLO X900, made by the Indian manufacturer Lava, will go on sale on 23 April priced at about 22,000 rupees (£265).


Lava has teamed up with Indian retail chain Croma to distribute the device across the country.


The move follows Intel's previous failed attempt to break into the smartphone market.


A tie-up with manufacturer LG in 2010 fell flat, with no models going into production.


Meanwhile, chips designed by British-based ARM and the American firm Qualcomm now dominate the market.


Details of Intel-powered smartphones made by Motorola Mobility and Lenovo are expected soon.
